For the chapter "Marketplace Theology" in the Dictionary of Mission Theology, Wong, provides a clear summary of the holistic thinking behind Marketplace Ministry – that each believer has a calling by which he or she serves God. He ties Marketplace Ministry to the creation commission of the father. Wong holds that if we only focus on the reconciling work of the son or the transforming work of the spirit without the creating work of the father, we fail to exhibit the wholeness of the trinitarian purpose of God. A short outline is provided of today’s world political conditions that require marketplace ministry in order to fulfill the great commission.
